Freddie Blay, acting National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has stated that his party will win the presidential election with about 60 percent of the valid votes that will be cast on December 7.
He stated that the citizenry are fed up with the corrupt, incompetent and non-performing National Democratic Congress (NDC) government – which he noted, had worsened the economic situation of the people.
Mr. Blay therefore, stressed that the NPP was ready to snatch political power from the ruling so as to introduce effective programmes to turn the fortunes of the country round.
According to him, Ghanaians are yearning to see the NPP back in government to save them from their misery.
“The NPP is winning the presidential and parliamentary elections and we are winning with a bigger margin,” the acting National Chairman, who sounded extremely confident, told newsmen after attending a crunch party meeting in Kumasi on Monday.
He stated that the campaign grounds looked fertile as everything indicated that the NPP would secure a “one-touch” victory.
The party’s big shots hatched various strategies aimed at winning the elections.
Nana Akufo-Addo, the NPP presidential candidate; Mac Manu, Campaign Manager; Dan Botwe, MP for Okere; Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Wontumi, Ashanti Regional Chairman, among others, were present.
Regional officers of the party and their counterparts from the constituencies as well as the party’s parliamentary candidates, were also there.
Mr. Blay, who would not disclose the topics that were discussed at the closed-door meeting for security reasons, said he was highly satisfied about what transpired.
From what he witnessed at the meeting, he stated, “The NPP will win 90 percent of votes in the Ashanti Region and 60 percent of votes across the country to win a landslide victory, this year.”
According to him, the NPP is united and stronger than ever in the Ashanti Region, which is the party’s strong fortress, stressing that nothing can stop the NPP from securing a landslide victory in the region.
The NPP bigwig, who is much adored by the party’s supporters especially in the Ashanti Region, appealed to the Electoral Commission (EC) to be fair and transparent in its activities.
He stated that if the elections are held in a free, fair and transparent manner, definitely the NPP will defeat the corrupt and non-performing NDC administration.
